|Probably safe for prolonged use by individuals with an acute porphyria, based on evidence that is either inconsistent or insufficient to be conclusive.|
|Probably unsafe for prolonged use by individuals with an acute porphyria, based on evidence that is either inconsistent or insufficient to be conclusive.|
|Very likely to be unsafe for prolonged use by individuals with an acute porphyria, based on consistent evidence.|
The information in this database contains some degree of uncertainty and is meant to be a guide for health care professionals. The prescription of drugs to a patient with acute porphyria is entirely at the risk of the physician in charge.
The same drug may appear in more than one database, so you may see repeated results and, in some cases, with different safety rating. Please be careful in these cases, the decision to use such a drug or not depends on your level on confidence in the database. If a drug is not listed in any of the databases consider it unsafe.
By using this application you agree that I accept no responsibility for any error, difference of opinion, or any adverse consequences arising from or occasioned by the use of information published on this application.

My name is Nicolas Frias and I have Acute Intermittent Porphyria, two of my three children have AIP and my sister died years ago of complications of an attack because she was given the wrong medication. Since then, I have carried a list of safe and unsafe drugs with me at all times, but now in the era of ubiquitous internet and smartphones, I decided to create this website and application. Although I am not directly affiliated with APF, UPA or NAPOS, I have a good relationship with both APF and UPA.
